Biopic of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, from her days as a student in the 1920s, through a debilitating accident and a tempestuous marriage to fellow painter, Diego Rivera.
Uglying-up with a home-grown moustache may help Salma Hayek in the Oscar running, but her performance as artist Frida Kahlo shouldn't do any harm either. Whether she's joking her way through the effects of a disabling accident, swinging Ashley Judd around the dance floor or trying to justify her marriage to a serial infidel, it's the human side of the painter that we see here.
